The interview has busted many myths towards COVID-19 and easy to digest
I found a Youtube video titled 'Myth-Busting Coronavirus (COVID-19) with Dr. Fauci - Give Back' the most informative regarding COVID-19. It is great for 3 main reasons:
- The Q&A format makes it interesting - like talking with your friend. The interview is very conversational, the host asks questions with which many people are holding doubts about a renowned health expert regarding COVID-19 in a casual way, making the information very digestible - it's like you are interacting with Dr. Fauci.
- The content has credibility and less likely to contain misinformation. The questions are answered by a health expert, therefore the content is very credible.
- Wide reach and impactful. The video is posted by an Instagram influencer, and she has a large following, thus the content will be extensively distributed and helping people understand COVID-19.

Interview with Dr. Fauci by an social media influencer
In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?
The video helped learn that:
1. COVID-19 is partially airborne
2. COVID-19 is covered with protein thus washing hands with soap works
2. CDC did not advise everyone to wear a mask because they are worried there would be a shortage of medical supplies. If everyone can afford to wear a mask, it will help prevent the spread of disease.
After watching the video, I started to care about ventilate space and wearing a mask. If I had to go to places with high risks like an airport or grocery store, I would open the window when I got in Uber to ventilate the air and dilute the viruses and wear a mask, if possible, to avoid people's droplets or viruses in the air.
In what ways did you share this information?
I shared it using social media such as Whatsapp/Facebook and text messaging.
What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?
I have around 10 friends contracted COVID-19 and most of them have mostly recovered. However, we don't know:
1. How many different strains are there currently? How is people's immunity after they recovered from the disease?
2. Are people recently recovered from COVID-19 still able to pass the disease to others? When is it safe to interact with them?
3. Where are the patients located? Is there one in my building?
What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?
I currently live in the Detroit area. In terms of case count, Michigan has already reached #3 in the country. It is reasonable to say that Detroit’s poverty rates are part of the reason that contributes to the high case count. Compared to other segments, I think residents under the poverty is the group that is not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information.
